Since the 1st day I toured I've felt very comfortable and confident with Kid Country. The touring process was simple with plenty of information. The center is very clean and organized. My son started first in the summer and absolutely loved all the activities and trips the center had planned out. They definitely keep the kids busy with fun! I especially love that my son can bus to and from school right from the center. My absolute favorite thing about Kid Country is the communication and the key card entrance. Between the app, text reminders and phone calls I always know my kids are safe and I'm updated on what's going on. All the staff is amazing but I'm especially appreciative of Mrs.Kathy who I've got to watch my daughter form a bond with as she learns the routine of saying goodbye during drop off in the mornings. Thank you Mrs.Kathy! Thank you Kid Country!

Cale Kuester

Staff are outstanding and always go above and beyond for my child. Facility is very clean, organized with a friendly atmosphere. Communication is great, I receive daily emails summarizing the day and it’s nice to open pictures showing the fun activities.
I highly recommend Kid County to any one looking for a great environment for their child.

Best of the best! Wouldn’t want to send my kids anywhere else. Amazing staff, teachers.

Kathy Keblusek

As a coworker, I couldn’t ask for a better work environment to be in. The staff is supportive of one another. I love the connections made with the children and their families. I highly suggested Kid Country for your child as we will love each child as our own and provide the best quality of care possible❤️ I love my Kid Country Family!

Brittany Creen

We have had nothing but a wonderful experience at Kid Country! Our family was fortunate to not need childcare for my oldest children, so when we found ourselves needing a daycare for my youngest we were very hesitant. The staff at Kid Country were extremely helpful and understanding with our concerns and made the transition seamless. Our son truly loves going to school and all of the activities. The stuff is involved with the development of all their children and always have the child's best interest in mind. Going to Kid Country was the best decision and we love knowing our son is in such good hands! I would recommend to any parent!

Laura DiMartino

We have had a great experience with Kid Country from the infant room all the way up to kindergarten. The entire team is excellent and they have taken such great care of my kiddos.

Samantha Wolfe

I highly recommend Kid Country Childcare! My toddler was in an at-home daycare until she was 3. I was hesitant to put her in an actual childcare facility, but gosh am I glad I found Kid Country! Every teacher there truly cares about each and every child within the facility. The learning activities are amazing and so much fun for the kids! Also, the summer program is so well put together and the kids love it! My toddler gets so excited every morning to go to Kid Country. She has made so many friends and loves her teachers so much. If you’re looking for a place you can trust, this is the place!

Joshua I

They take good care of my kid when he is there 10 out of 10 would recommend

John C

Kid country is an amazing place!! My children love the experience they have daily. I don’t remember a day that my kids came home with a story about it was boring or they had a bad day. It’s always we did this and that and we got to learn about tons of new things. I trust and never have a concern about my children when they are in the loving hands of kid country child care and all the loving staff they have! Thank you!!!!!

Marisela H

My son, daughter and I moved to Manhattan just 2 years ago. 1 year ago I made the hard decision to switch childcare centers after 3 years. It's never easy to change what your kids know. It's even harder when trying to feel out and form trust with new people who will be taking care of our children. However since the 1st day I toured I've felt very comfortable and confident with Kid Country. The touring process was simple with multiple reminders and plenty of information. The center is very clean and organized. My son started first in the summer and absolutely loved all the activities and trips the center had planned out. They definitely keep the kids busy with fun! I especially love that my son can bus to and from school right from the center. My absolute favorite thing about Kid Country is the communication and the key card entrance. Between the app, text reminders and phone calls I always know my kids are safe and I'm updated on what's going on. All the staff is amazing but I'm especially appreciative of Mrs.Kathy who I've got to watch my daughter form a bond with as she learns the routine of saying goodbye during drop off in the mornings. Thank you Mrs.Kathy! And as a single mom of 2 kids I've never been more grateful to have found such a great center, Thank you Kid Country!

Nicole K

I transferred my son to Kid Country from another preschool program last year because I felt he needed more structure than he was getting. Kid Country has been wonderful! They have a great program and the teachers are amazing! It is just what my son needed!

Andrea Williams

We love Kid Country. The staff is so friendly and genuinely cares about the kids. highly recommend!

Jackie C

After my son’s previous preschool closed, we switched over to Kid Country’s Blue Gill preschool program. We were extremely nervous because my son is on the shy side and took a year to adjust at his other school- we didn’t want to go through that again for an entire year. After just two weeks at KC, my son was excited to go to school, has grown leaps and bounds due to their curriculum and play-based learning, and is always thrilled to come home and show us what he has learned at school. The staff has been so wonderful with him, and are the main reason for the seamless adjustment.

Shay B

We have been coming to kid country since last fall when we moved, it has been wonderful in every way. Our two Boys have enjoyed going to daycare and the communication with staff is always exceptional. We are so happy to have found such a gem that is close to us!

Shannon H

My family and I absolutely love Kid Country! Both of my daughters have either attended or are currently attending at this time. This is an incredible establishment! All the teachers and staff members are extremely friendly and are absolutely great with kids. We feel welcomed as soon as we walk in the door. My daughters have learned so much and are always happy while being at Kid Country. We would absolutely recommend to anyone!!!

Nichole M

As full time working parents we love what Kid Country provides our kids - especially in the summer months. Kids come home happy with fun stories each day. Summertime is full of extra activities and exploring. Thanks KC and awesome teachers!!!

Emily H

When I drop my daughter off it feels like I am leaving her with family. It feels safe, happy and encouraging. Miss Wendy and Miss Rhonda have helped her come out of her shell. The confidence she has gotten from being at KC has been amazing. I am so happy we are here. I’m so excited we get to stay for 2 more years. Shout out to KC, you guys are the best!!!

Cheryl P

We love Kid Country. Always great activities and learning opportunities. And more than prepared to start kindergarten.

Melissa M

Working with children has always been something that I wanted to do and Kid Country made my dream come true at just 18 years old! Well 18 years later, I couldn’t be more proud to call Kid Country home. To all the families that have trusted me with their children, to the friendships I have made, to having a boss that believes in you both personally and professionally. I would not trade it for anything! I am truly blessed and I have Kid Country to thank for that!

Cheryl Pristas

We have been a Kid Country family for the past 9 years and can't imagine using any other provider. From the moment we walked in over 9 years ago to to present it's like your kids are with family. They are so great with the kids and communicate well with parents. Fun educational activities that keep the youngest to oldest kids engaged. The kids thar attend Kid Country are more than prepared for kindergarten. Over the years Kid Country has added to the programs and remodeled the center. It's a great Childcare center I recommend to everyone.

Wendy F

I love Kid Country from the moment you walk through the door the friendly greetings you and your children get! They really do make you feel like family! The teachers are truly amazing and very caring! The boys have learned so much! I highly would recommend Kid Country;)

Abbey R

From my daughters grandmother after attending Grandparents Day:
“I walked into a loving atmosphere and was wowed by the teachers and the activities for my granddaughter to experience. The teachers are rockstars. I could not do what they do. I am so grateful and appreciate Kid Country Childcare!”

Katie G

We love KC! Ms Rhonda and Ms Wendy do an amazing job with the Blue Gills Preschool Program! They really love their students and it shows. They make all the difference!

Roxanne K

My Granddaughter loves coming here. Great place.

Lexi Costa

My twins have been at Kid Country for almost 2 years now. This is the 2nd daycare they've been to and Kid Country blows their previous daycare out of the water!! ALL teachers there are kind, attentive, helpful, and so nice. I couldn't imagine a better setting for learning and exploring than Kid Country. We love it!!

Shannon Leahy McLean

We love the family involvement nights and activities, the outdoor place space, and all the special trips and visitors they have! Our boys are happy to go to school to see teachers and friends.

Jessica Piscione

Highly recommended! I have had my son at Kid Country since he was 8 months old. He has learned so much in just the few months he has attended. The growth in him is unbelievable. He absolutely loves his teachers and his friends at school. Every morning he gets excited when I ask if he’s ready to go to school. All the the staff, teachers, etc. are incredible. Extremely welcoming, friendly. As a first time mom I was nervous about putting my son in daycare and they have absolutely calmed my nerves.

Chelsea Gurgone

Highly recommended!! We have had our children at kid country since 2014, and have loved it ever since! My kids have always been treated like family, developed all the skills needed to grow, and well prepared for kindergarten. I appreciate how well they communicate and share photos / updates all day. Not to mention, they have so much fun!

Amelia Wozniak

I've had my two sons enrolled at Kid Country since they were 21 months and 18 months old, respectively; and since 2016. Currently my oldest has since "graduated" to Kindergarten, and my youngest still loves to go everyday. He runs into his class in the mornings, and if we have a holiday break for a few days, he starts asking me when he can go "back to school." I don't know what more I could possibly ask/wish for for my boys.

I would highly recommend this school for anyone looking for childcare in the Manhattan area, you will not be disappointed.

Allison mccarthy

My son has attended both 3- and 4- year old preschool at Kid Country. The teachers are amazing! The communication is terrific! He always comes home with fun activities and lots of excitement to share what he’s learned!

Katie Rollins

We had a great experience at Kid Country. My kids were there for 3 years and they loved all of their teachers and were always excited to go to school. The director was always so helpful if I ever had questions and was great with communication (especially during covid). We recently moved away and were so sad to leave Kid Country!

Christa Leigh

Top quality care and education for your little ones! Children learn through play each day with the love and support of an amazing staff. Yummy meals and clean facilities, too! We are very happy with Kid Country!

David Kortman

Kid Country is the best child care around! They have great teachers, and strive to make the experience educational and productive every day.

Nick Judd

A wonderful place to send your little ones. The teachers and staff genuinely care about the students and do a great job of taking interest in your child. I couldn’t imagine mine going anywhere else.

Kristine D

I’ve had both my kids at Kid Country for close to 8yrs. They both started kindergarten knowing letters, numbers, how to write their name, etc. The Kid Country staff is the best and there’s no other childcare facility I would entrust my kids to!

Heather Kuipers

We love Kid Country! The teachers are so caring and you can tell they love what they do and the kids they take care of!

Jennifer Goodman

Can’t say enough good things about kid country! Our child loves it there and gets mad at us if we pick up too early. There so much space to play outside, the teachers are phenomenal, and it doesn’t sink of dirty diapers. Very happy with our choice of sending our child here.

Emily H

It’s so nice to have your child attend a place that feels like they are your family. Kid Country is our second home and I am so happy we are able to send our daughter there. The Blue Gills program is 10 out of 10!! Miss Rhonda, Miss Wendy and Miss Sam are the best! My daughter loves to go to school and I love picking her up and hearing how her day was. Nothing but the best. Thank you Kid Country!!!!

Dillon P

Both my kids attend KC and nothing but great reviews! Great staff and kids treated with love and respect in all aspects!!

Abbey and Mike Reinbolt

The absolute best decision we made for our daughter!! Every single staff is incredibly welcoming and kind! Definitely have a piece of mind knowing our daughter is here with the most loving and nurturing individuals!

Carly Benard

Absolutely love sending my children here! My daughter has a special connection with Ms. Elly! Whenever she is having a bad day, I know Ms. Elly will find a way to cheer my daughter up. My daughter barely allows me to brush her hair, yet allows Ms. Elly braid her hair in all these fun ways. It’s great for my daughter to have such a safe connection with one of her teachers (although all her teachers are amazing!!)

Bethany Lerch

Kathy is wonderful and has been so influential to my child’s success educationally, and socially around his peers.

Vanessa Munoz

As an employee, Kid Country is by far the best place to work at. I get best of both worlds as an employee and a parent who's children attend. Everyone who works here is so encouraging and up lifting. Admin team is amazing. Kid country goes above and beyond for everyone who walks through the doors. Can't forget about our Special Events Coordinator, Behavioral Coach and Administrative Assistant. Honestly the best team to be on.

Kimberly B

My 3 your old grandson has been attending Kid Country since he was about 5 months old. We absolutely love it there and the entire staff. I definitely recommend this child care.

Jackie P

If I could give a higher review than 5 stars, I would. Ms Emily, Ms Katie, Ms Evelyn, and Ms Kathy…. You have made the most substantial impact on my child. You are her second safe space and I couldn’t be any happier- I can’t even put into words how grateful I am. She started at KC when she was 15 months old, she’s now 2 and a half and is closer than ever with her teachers. Honestly- all the staff is incredible and she’s formed bonds with teachers from all different classrooms. She stops every afternoon at the front desk to give Ms Jill a big squishy hug, she loves hearing Ms Bailey tell her fun stories with her big vibrant personality, she loves learning from Ms Meg new songs and dances, she loves popping into the yellow ducks to say goodbye at the end of the day to the babies and Ms Amy ♥️

Chris W

We have been very happy with the education, love and support our boys have received at Kid Country.

Ana J

We love Kid Country for more reasons than I can fit into one review! I have watched my kids thrive since they have been attending. My 4 year old is learning so much, has made so many friends, and genuinely loves going to school. My 15 month old goes to her teachers happily without fussing, is always smiling when we pick her up, and is getting so many amazing experiences. They really treat you like family there. All the teachers know my kids’ names, even if they have never had them as students. Everyone knows what’s going on in their lives and their likes and interests. It’s a really great place!

Emily S

Kid country has been nothing but amazing to my daughter since she was one. She now will be heading to kindergarten and I couldn't be more sad for her to leave KC. She has had so much fun everyday coming!

Jeff D

I LOVE Kid Country because of the genuine care & compassion that they show towards my kids. From wiping away tears at drop offs to help with potty training to extra snuggles when my daughter became a big sister, staff at kid country have always made us feel like our kids were part of their own families. They call for check ins, send email updates and are so invested in the well-being of our whole family. I can’t recommend them enough!

Mary D

Michelle S

I ABSOLUTELY love KidCountry Childcare!!! The staff here is nothing short of truly AMAZING! Coming out of the pandemic, my oldest was so incredibly shy and unsure of himself. From the 1st day after I dropped him off, I knew he was going to be in the BEST hands! Ms Bailey, Ms Wendy & Ms Victoria were so patient, so understanding. I had an immediate sense of relief leaving him because they treated him as if he was their own. I believe his success now in kindergarten is because of the foundation KidCountry gave him!
If that wasn't enough, I'm having a hard time putting into words all KC has/is doing for my family now with my twins. Making the decision to withdraw my boy twin from the EC program has to be the hardest decision I have ever had to make! I knew in my heart he had so much more potential than what they were telling me he had and this amazing group of women have gone above and beyond with working with me & his private therapy. Ms McKenzie, Ms Grace, Ms Kelly, Ms Wendy, Ms Fran, Ms Ellie and everyone else(I'm so sorry if I have left out anyone) who are helping to take care of him are nothing but angels! My completely non verbal child as of 2/22 is completely VERBAL! His progress has been nothing short of a miracle! I know in my heart if it wasn't for the extreme patience & shared determination with me to not accept or give up on him, he would NOT be where he is today! I am now so incredibly hopeful that we can help him achieve ALL that he is meant be! KidCountry will always be apart of my families story, and for that I can not recommend a better place to send the loves of my life, my kids!

Tiffany Chimmy

Miss. Victoria is an amazing teacher as well as Miss Mary. Im so happy they are my child's teacher.

Becky B

We came to Kid Country at the beginning of the school year for our daughter going into Pre-K. She was struggling on a few things and was a little behind when she started but where she is now is leaps and bounds. The entire staff is amazing and so friendly and she loves Ms. Wendy and Ms. Rhonda!! Thank you for welcoming us into the Kid Country family!

Hayley Holmes

My daughter is always so excited for school. Mrs. Rhonda and Mrs. Wendy make the blue gills class a home away from home. I never have to worry that my daughter is safe or being cared for properly. Kid Country has made her break out of her shell completely. I’m so glad we picked KC for preschool and are honored to be apart of their family!

Jessica M

Absolutely love kid country! They are wonderful with my son. He learns so much there. It is a family oriented daycare and the staff know all the kids. So happy to have found this place. Would never send my kids anywhere else. If your looking for good childcare this place is it!

Mary W

The environment is so warm and loving. I have always felt at ease leaving my child here. She loves coming back for breaks from school to see her KC family.

Ally F

Kid Country is the BEST. When we moved into the area, we spoke with and toured numerous daycare facilities. My biggest priority was to feel comfortable with the people I would leave my children with. We came for our tour and everyone was kind, helpful, and loving. We were sold that day! In the almost 2 years we have been there, Kid Country has continued to exceed my expectations. Stellar daycare, amazing preschool program, fantastic staff!

Yesenia C

Kid country has always made me and my daughter feel welcome and comfortable. Not only that but they take their time getting to know each family and all about them. I look forward to sending my infant here in a few weeks. One of the few places I’d trust to take care of an infant due to how awesome they have been with my oldest!

Emily W

Kid Country is a second home to my girls who both started at 10 weeks old. I have had the pleasure of not only professionally growing at Kid Country but also trusting the team to help me raise my babies. I will forever be impacted and grateful for the teachers and staff at Kid Country.

Emily S

I have worked at Kid Country for 3 years now. I love the family atmosphere from staff and families. I have received open arms since day one. I have made so many new friendships that will last me a life time. I am blessed to be able to bring my daughter to Kid Country also. I love being able to watch her learn and grow along the way. I would highly recommend kid country as a place for work and a place for young one to learn and grow!

Terrie M

Thank you for having Grandparents Day. It was so much fun seeing what you do with the kids. Maverick was so excited we were all there and couldn’t wait to show as everything. I could see you work with the kids and that you enjoy working with them. THANK YOU!

Vicki A

Kid country makes me feel comfortable leaving my children at every day.

Tatiana M

This is our first year at Kid Country childcare and I must say I was very impressed with Family Fun night. The games were great and the staff was amazing. Looking forward to another family fun night!!!

Stefani White

Amazing staff, clean facility and our kids are soaring academically. We can feel confident that while we are working our kids are having fun, learning, are safe and feel loved. Highly recommend!

Jim Defrank

Peace of Mind. I have dropped my three children off here for the past decade. I had peace of mind every time I dropped them off. This place is more than a "daycare" it truly is an early education center. The teachers here are some of the best I have seen, they work hard and are dedicated. If you are lucky enough to get a spot at this place you will not be disappointed.

Christa Blatt

Kid Country Childcare provides quality childcare to all ages. They have long-term staff members, in house meals, play-based curriculum, and a Silver Circle Quality state rating! We have had our children in their care for seven years and would highly recommend them to anyone!

Jill Deaville

I highly recommend Kid Country! The teachers are amazing. They have gone above and beyond to help my girls overcome their social anxiety which is no easy feat especially during Covid. My daughters love going to Kid Country and now have the ability to build relationships and make friends. Seeing them thrive both academically and socially has brought me so much joy as a mother. I have Kid Country to thank for that!!

Melissa Carlson

Amazing staff! The facility is kid friendly and the staff is always putting kids first. Very helpful and accommodating, my kids feel safe.

With Love, Jessica

Both of my sons attend kid country, they both started at newborns, the staff has made me and my family so comfortable leaving them in their care, they send pictures through out the day, just to let you know how their day is going good. I have never ever thought twice about leaving my babies there! They truly feel like family 🖤

Lilly Smetana

I love Kid Country because they provide the structure my kids need while still allowing them to be kids and explore the world through play. My kids have gone there almost their entire lives, and I really think they provide a home away from home for my children!

Lori Jadin

We have been sending our children to Kid Country since 2006. There just aren't enough words to convey how wonderful our experience has been with Kid Country. We love the director, staff and program. This is a loving, reliable and professional center!

Melissa Esquivel

So happy with the care at Kid Country. My daughter loves all her teachers, it means allot when your kids are happy to go to school/daycare. Takes a big weight off your shoulders.

Jessica Piscione

My son has attended this daycare since he was 8 months old. They have taught him so much! He loves going to school every morning to see his teachers and friends. They also handled Covid extremely well and have put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend this daycare.

Nicholas M

My children love Kid Country. My daughter is particularly energized by KC and wants to go to school every morning, including on weekends. It helps (and I love) that the kids get to spend a lot of time outside and playing in general. (Playing is the best way for kids to learn.) They love their teachers and they’re making good friends along the way.

Sarah Gaszak

Kid Country has been a part of our lives for just over one year, and continues to be one the best parenting decisions we have made! We are so happy with the preschool program, and the impact the teachers and staff have had on our kids.

Lori Jenen

My son loves going to Kid Country. They are attentive and I’ve really enjoyed the experience! I also have a baby in the nursery and it is so nice to not have to worry about her during the day and I know she is in good hands and loves seeing the teachers there.

Brooke Andrews

Absolutely love this preschool amd after school care for my daughter! All the Teachers are amazing. My daughter has been going there for about 4 years now and I have never had any issues. Highly recommend!

Love kid country and my daughter does too- very personable staff and take the time to give updates and pictures of your kids so you know they are doing okay

Eddie Smith

ighly recommend. Sent my daughter here and she loved it.

Kelly Cesario

We absolutely love Miss Kathy! She was my son’s first teacher in the purple parrots room and now we have her in the Red Robin’s. Drop off can be a little rough with my little guy but Miss Kathy is always there to comfort him and make sure he feels better about leaving mom.

Erin Malinowski

My son loves going to Kid Country. He started as an infant and is now in pre-kindergarten. Kid Country is family. The caring and dedication of the staff cannot be beat. The children are taught strong social skills and he has made incredible friends that will last a lifetime.

Kim Bottema

My 8 month old grandson has been going to Kid Country for a few months now and he gets so excited when we walk through the door in the morning. Everyone is so nice, helpful and professional. They do so much with them. They keep you very well informed. I would definitely recommend bringing your children here.

My grandson is now 3 and still going to Kid Country. He loves it and so do I. They are awesome.

Lauren S

Kid Country Childcare is the best thing I have done for my child. Before starting, at one and a half she was almost completely non verbal with no signs of starting. After about 2 months she started speaking more. Now at two and a half she hasn’t stopped talking. I credit her speech to Kid Country and the amazing teachers they have on staff. Out of all the childcare facilities in my area, I’m glad I went with Kid Country.

Sarah H

We have been going to Kid Country for 3 years now and it was the best decision. The dedication they have to our kids is truly amazing. Our kids have developed and learned so much during their time at Kid Country. We are so grateful for their passion and allowing our children to succeed in the classroom!

Mary W

I love Kid Country for my child because they have always made us feel like family ! My daughter has been at Kid country since she was 15 months old and now she is going into 1st grade and still loves it the same! I have always felt so comfortable leaving my child here! So happy for my child to have KC as another family

Amanda L

My son has been going to Kid Country for over a year now, and he LOVES it. It can definitely be tough finding a place to trust such precious cargo and care for your littles. We are always welcomed with smiling faces, and I really feel the love and care the teachers give to my little guy. They really pack his day with all kinds of activities to keep his little mind stimulated and growing. It gives me great piece of mind knowing that he is learning the skills he needs to be ready for school.

Kelly C

We absolutely love Kid Country! The staff has been amazing since day one. Not only was it an adjustment for my son but for me as well, and everyone made us feel so comfortable and welcomed. It’s a comforting feeling knowing I can leave my son and he will be well taken care of while I am at work.

Katie G

The staff at Kid Country is amazing! My son has been in the Blue Gills preschool program with Ms Rhonda and Ms Wendy for 2 years. They have prepared him so well for kindergarten!

Paul G

My family’s experience with Kid Country has been excellent. Our son loves his program and teachers. He always comes home excited to talk about what he learned and did that day. Our whole family likes getting to see what arts and crafts he has made that day connected to the curriculum.

The communication from Kid Country has also been very good, with daily app notifications, in-app chat functions, weekly emails, and text updates. I especially enjoy the daily updates on the program’s curriculum to know what my son is learning. We always feel connected and well-informed.

Kelly T

We love Kid Country childcare! The teachers are supportive and you can tell they love what they do! Our son loves coming to school everyday and loves all of his teachers. We have seen so much growth in him since starting at Kid Country. The before and after school program is wonderful. We enjoy the fun family activities they offer throughout the year.

Chris B

When we moved to Manhattan we were nervous to start our kids at a completely new school. But immediately our kids were met with caring and welcoming teachers, an atmosphere that teaches their classmates to be welcoming of new friends, and super interesting and unique units to learn. Couldn’t be happier to be a part of the Kid Country family.

Sarah G

We have been so happy with Kid Country! Our son was very nervous about starting preschool, and we toured several places—Kid Country was where he felt most comfortable, and even excited. Since starting, we realized we made the right choice: we love hearing about what the class does each day, the staff is incredibly friendly and supportive, and we have seen such growth in our child.

Abbey R

We love Kid Country! When we drop our daughter off, it feels like we are leaving her with family! All the Purple Parrot Teachers are outstanding! They have taught our daughter so much, caring, loving and like mother figures to our daughter! Thank you for making Kid Country a second home for our daughter!

Caitlin Wilson

My daughter is in the Orange Owl class. She's been attending Kid Country for a few years. I'm extremely pleased this year with the teaches my daughter has. Ms. Victoria and Ms. Mary are wonderful. Those two are definitely meant to work with children. They're very empathetic, patient, and kind! I feel very comfortable leaving my daughter with them. Nothing but great things to say about these girls!! Thank you both for being a great asset to the Orange Owl class! Arianna loves you both!

Rachel Styx

We love Kid Country! The Blue Gills program has been great for my son. Ms. Rhonda & Ms. Wendy are AMAZING!

Emily S

Kid Country has became a second home to my daughter and myself. My daughter is beyond excited to come to school everyday. I also love waking up to come to work here everyday. I love all the staff members and families who come through the door. Kid Country is our second family.


Our daughter has only been at Kid Country for 2 months now, but the changes we have seen in such a short amount of time have been incredible! She genuinely looks forward to going each day, and loves to tell us all about her wonderful teachers and friends when we pick her up. The staff is always so friendly and kind, and we appreciate how helpful they have been throughout this new change in our lives. Highly recommend Kid Country!

Colleen Powell

All 3 of my kids have attended Kid Country over the last 9 years. The kids love it and learn so much. The teachers are top notch and keep you involved in your child’s learning.

Michelle brouillet

I walked through the doors of Kid Country for the first time fresh out of college. As my first, “real job” I had no idea what an impact on my life it would have. Eighteen years later, I am so happy and so proud to be a part of such a wonderful team. The love and support from everyone within drives me to be a better person and a better leader.

I am beyond grateful for the many years of opportunity & growth and the countless meaningful relationships built with coworkers, children, and families.

Kid Country is a wonderful place to work! The staff and administration team are so welcoming and kind. I truly enjoy working alongside my fellow staff members. I love having 10-15 hugs each morning I walk into work. The families and children are the absolute best! There is a family like atmosphere and I love it.

We are given plenty of opportunities to grow in our childcare careers through various trainings and experiences. The staff are very supportive and will help you out in any way they can. They really will!

I love my Kid Country family and I am beyond thankful for each of them!

Kids country is by far the best daycare around, they do so much with the kids. My daughter tells me daily everything that they do with her and how much she loves it and she’s only 3!

Before I started working at Kid Country I worked at 4 other centers in Illinois. Upon being hired I knew that the children at Kid Country were getting the best childcare around. Working here has been a blessing. This center strives to be the best of the best. The staff works hard as a team to achieve National recognition, and it shows in all that we do. Coming to work there was one of the best decisions I’ve have made in my career! I’ve been there 17 years, and hope to retire there!

Our boys have been going to Kid Country since the summer and we couldn’t be happier. We previously sent our boys to an in-home daycare and when we moved we were worried it would be hard to find a facility that would make our boys feel as safe and loved. Kid Country was highly recommended to us and we fell in love as soon as we visited. Our boys were welcomed with open arms, the kids were so thrilled to have new friends in their class, the staff was immediately kind and welcoming. I was most impressed with the curriculum, though! They are learning things I personally would never know how to teach my kids… or even think of! I feel like academically they are soaring. The boys get excited to go to school each day and we are confident they are getting plenty of attention, love and good care

If you are looking for a great day care, look no further. My kids have moved through each classroom and they love each one. They are both very happy and the teachers are absolutely wonderful. I will be sad when my kids are too old to come here, they love it!

Our daughter has attended Kid Country since she was 6 weeks old. The staff all took her in as one of their own. I love that they are play based and that the kids are constantly engaged in activities, working together, and being outdoors! She has thrived outside the program because of what she has learned there.

Myself and my kids LOVE kid country! The staff is phenomenal. My kids learn so much! My 3 year old always asks to go to school! My one year old is always running out of my arms to go to her classroom. I highly recommend !
